ONE Blade Awards [2023]
The Final Results for the ONE Blade Awards are ready to release! 2023 was another year of progress for the blading community as we found new faces, welcomed a class of younger skaters, and got more widespread appreciation for blading by outlets like The New York Times than we’ve seen, well, maybe ever...

Back in April, Adam Bazydlo reached out, saying he'd be in San Diego for a week and wanted to meet up. This posed a challenge for me because I was working full-time and had just become a parent, "I'll let you know when I'm available." But seeing him and Art Graza on Instagram skating without me, I knew I had to prioritize quickly before he left town.

La Rue in California
In 2023 the La Rue crew, Stan Kogutyak and Jules Renault, ventured to California where they teamed up with Seba Seufferheld, Sean Darst, Miguel Angel Ramos, Joe Atkinson, and Parker Richardson to film for a project that turned into DREAM. Jules documented the travels between Los Angeles, Slab City and San Francisco on his film camera for this series of photos that act like an analog extension of the video. Like liner notes from a CD booklet, these moments capture the tour's vibe of Cali sunshine, smiles, shred, blood, parties, and new friends.

Our luck was in which meant poor Niko had to deal with a short awkward angled run up to a crusty cornered rail that I doubt had ever seen a trick go down it. Not ideal but I knew Niko was the man for the job and he proved that with this slow and controlled backslide that came with his usual buckets of style. I sat back on my Nikkor 50mm to get everything in frame, including the sea gull above while...

Some may think that San Diego is always blue skies and sunny but this isn’t always true. For example, we have something locals call June gloom. June gloom happens when the air near the ocean's surface is cooler than the air above it creating a blanket of marine layer of clouds that sometimes does not clear up for an entire day. However...

NYC Street Invite 2023: Final Spot Still Captures
500 phones out grabbing clips and live video at the NYC Street Invite, but a great photo still captures a moment in time that’s open for interpretation. They provide moments that can be savored, studied, scrutinized for subtle details that the quick motion of a video clip may not provide.

San Diego to CORT 2023
Ten of us left San Diego on a Tuesday afternoon in early August with a destination: Colorado. We were a caravan of vagabonds who indulged in rolling on eight wheels, gathering wood, making massive fires, soaking in hot springs, shocking ourselves in the Rocky Mountain waters, chowing on the local burger scene, and pulling at local parks like we owned ‘em.

Addiction, Recovery & Rollerblading: What happened to the French Bros?
While standing among the crowd assembled at Modern Skatepark in February 2023, watching some qualifying round of the 10 year anniversary Bitter Cold Showdown as Derek French landed a solid TTS across the tombstone, I realized that not too many people in the skatepark knew what happened to Derek and Mike French during the last 15+ years. This is their story.

What’s The Highest Honor In Blading?
One of the highest levels of achievement in the world of action sports is earning a pro-model item with your name on it. For rollerbladers, while there are pro frames, wheels, shirts, and more, the big ticket item with the most prestige is a pro skate. The allure can be motivating, intoxicating, frustrating, and, for most, unrealized. But for some, it’s a dream come true…
